SECOND Subject: Opening your car with your cell phone: Have
you locked your keys in the
car? Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come
in handy some day. Good
reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys
in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at
home on their cell phone
from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a
foot from your car door and have the person at your home
press the unlock button,
holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,
and if you can reach someone who has the other
"remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
We tried this cell phone to
cell phone door opening suggestion on two different cars, it didn't
work for us.
THIRD Subject: Hidden
Battery Power Imagine your cell battery is very low. To
activate, press the keys *3370#. Your cell will restart with this
reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in
battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell
next time. We didn't try this. Our cell
phones were at full power already.
FOURTH Subject: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following
digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #. A 15 digit code will
appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write
it down and keep it somewhere safe. If your phone get stolen, you
can phone your service provider and give them this code.
They will then be able to block your handset so even if the
thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally
useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at
least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either.
If everybody does this, there would be no point in
people stealing mobile phones. And Finally....
Hmm. When I did this, I got 17 numbers, not
15. I also got some letters and a slash. I wrote it all down. If my
cell gets stolen I'll report all of it. Maybe the Indian or
Pakistani service technician I talk to will figure it out.
FIFTH Subject: service charges:
Cell phone companies are
charging us $1.00 to
$1.75 or more for 411 information calls. Most of us do not carry the
Yellow Pages in
cars. When you need to use the 411 information
simply dial: (800) FREE 411, or (800) 373-3411
for free info
Great idea if you remember how to program
phone numbers into your cell.
